2020 is moving along at a rapid pace and we are all aware that our life as we know it has changed, at least for now.

As such, GAIA Insights has found itself very well-placed to deal with remote, home-based working, as this has been its reality since it was established in 2012. I recognize this is not the case for the majority of organizations – a fact which has inspired me to write this blog.

Together, we took one step towards being patient and compassionate with ourselves – staying curious about transforming the “container” of our minds! So...how about YOU take a break… to sharpen your saw?

Let’s be honest, the world has always been an uncertain place, but now we cannot escape that truth. I don’t need to tell you that the world has changed, fast. And in ways we could not have imagined.
